Pietermaritzburg - Matriculants who flocked to KwaZulu-Natal for the annual Rage Festival had an incident-free weekend, said volunteers.

Pippa Rowney of Red Frogs South Africa said the first weekend of #Rage2015 went “extremely well” and no serious incidents were reported.

Red Frogs, a volunteer-based organisation that offers medical and other support to the ragers, had more than 200 volunteers out in full force.

“We are continuing with our education of keeping the ragers hydrated and making sure there is always enough space in our tents for them to rest in,” said Rowney.

Red Frogs also walk the teenagers home and do patrols on the beaches, having direct access to security and medical services.

She added that security had been increased this year to ensure an incident-free #Rage2015.

#Rage2015, taking place in Umhlanga, Ballito and Margate, began on Friday night with the traditional Leichi Party in Ballito. The events include 88 parties and 87 international and local DJs.
